Old Town Spring's first weekly Friday farmers market is set to debut this Friday, May 1. According to the market's website, the event will take place every Friday from 3:30-7:30 p.m throughout the year.

While the weekly market was originally supposed to launch in April, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic pushed those plans back to May. The Old Town Spring Farmer's Market will take place in the parking lot of Immanuel United Church of Christ, located at 26501 Border St., Spring. While the market's venue has space for as many as 68 Texas-based vendors, the May 1 market will feature 34 vendors including Be Pure Naturals, Biryani Hut and Theiss Farms Market.

To reduce the risk of exposure to the coronavirus for both attendees and vendors, organizer Mary Middlebrook said the farmers market has widened walkways, increased vendors' plot sizes and will be providing hand sanitizer to vendors and market attendees.

"We put a lot of different things in place that we've never planned on doing in the first place but i think it's smart and I think it's safe, and we're excited to show up," Middlebrook said.
